Our Client: Is a leading Hospitality Company in UAE. They are an excellent company to work for with a strong reputation.
Your Role: A "thought leader" you should be able to work across a big department and substantial budgets to drive transformation and bring in the best global practices. Setting the tone for change and driving efficencies you should have the ability to carry people and influence mindsets.
Ability to set the strategic souring plan across a wide geography, implement the plan and have hands on experience in procurement IT tools would be critical. Since the role plays a very important part in the way things will move forward your experience in change management, moving to more of an e procurment model and being able to move away from a heavily transactional to a more strategic level is important . In a nutshell you would suppot the vision / mission and strategy for the procument function.
Must Have: 15+ years in a contracting/ construction organization. Prior experience in an organization which went through transformation from the traditional to the virtual would be great to have.
Managing Expectations: At mindfield we are driven by mutually agreed KPIs and service levels. Exceptional results can only be delivered when we understand both our key stakeholders clients and candidates. Keeping this in mind we would request that when applying for a role do take cognizance of the “must haves” to avoid disappointment. Sometimes positions take time to close and there could be delay in us responding to you but respond we will. Look forward to a long term relationship…..mindfield..making a difference.
